    I already love green beans but these were great. I added some minced fresh garlic and left out the parsley as I didn't have any. - 4/22/08

    We added soy sauce & 3 cloves of chopped garlic and my hubby said he could eat a whole plate by itself. Yummo! - 1/22/08

    I make these ALL the time. The blanching is SO essential to getting the proper texture. I also like to add mushrooms and or minced garlic. Love love love sauteed green beans :) - 4/14/08
